Happy Holidays ✨✨✨ Discover…What’s In It for YOU?
More than ever before, people are living longer with the expectation of enjoying healthier and more vibrant lives. This motivational self-help book outlines the necessary self-care actions to become your own wellness advocate and achieve success in your new lifestyle and wellness journey. Carolyn A. Brent brings fresh perspectives and cutting edge research to areas such as undertaking blood type diets, revving up your immune system, dealing with stress, starting exercise programs based on body types, and more.
Brent’s step-by-step guide will have you excited with your life-changing results when you are tapping into your deep beauty and inner worth. It offers a blueprint for how to live your best life at any age, with vitality, wisdom, and grace. With clear and flexible examples, Transforming Your Life Through Self-Care will guide you to take ownership of your self-care and tap into those resources you may not know you have.
Like a good coach, Brent (The Caregiver’s Companion, 2015) inspires action. At 61, she is a buff, beautiful bodybuilder who transformed her life by leaving a cheating spouse, going to the gym, controlling her spending, and eating healthy food. She wants to empower others to follow in her disciplined footsteps. In her how-to guide, each chapter focuses on a different area, such as exercising or developing a meal plan, and includes questions, such as, “Are you eating foods that are laced with preservatives, GMOs, and other harmful chemicals?” She offers a surprising amount of health advice for an MBA, though usually, it’s pretty basic. Skeptics may roll their eyes when she talks about “eating to blood type” or when she tells them they need to live in their “own divine light.” But she also quotes the Chinese saying, “If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” Brent’s positive, inspiring messages about self-love, giving back, and rejoicing should resonate with many.
